Race Notes:

In the biggest beer mile field ever assembled in San Francisco, 25 men and a woman put everything on the line and ran their gutsiest race, some in different ways than others.

With cold rains looming and the very real threat of getting arrested for drinking on public school property, spectators and racers alike witnessed the second fastest official performance on American soil by Todd Rose, a great woman's rookie performance by Nicole, several PR's including a huge 3 plus minute PR by TK, as well as several horribly graphic regurgitations. It was a day we'll all remember, for good and bad.
